- 2 Chronicles

by C.I. Scofield

Book Introduction - 2 Chronicles

2 Chronicles 1:1

This book continues the history begun in First Chronicles. It falls into eighteen divisions, by reigns, from Solomon to the captivities; records the division of the kingdom of David under Jeroboam and Rehoboam, and is marked by an ever growing apostasy, broken temporarily by reformations under Asa, 14-16; Jehoshaphat, 2 Chronicles 17:1-19; Joash, 24; Hezekiah, 29-32; and Josiah, 34,35. But the religious state of the people, even at the best, is described in Isaiah 1-5.

The events recorded in Second Chronicles cover a period of 427 years. (Ussher).
